Mercedes-Benz EQS to launch on August 24, AMG variant to be first to arrive

Mercedes-Benz EQS has been confirmed for India launch on August 24. The S-Class based luxury electric sedan will join the sibling EQC in India. The EQS comes as the second electric vehicle from the German auto major. Previously, Mercedes-Benz said that it expects the electric vehicles to fetch 15-20 per cent of its total sales by 2025-26 and the launch of EQS comes as part of that strategy. With this, the largest luxury carmaker in India aims to further strengthen its footprint in the flagship electric vehicle segment.

Mercedes-Benz also previously revealed its expectation to sell at least a significant three-digit number of the EQS electric sedan, which will be assembled at its Pune factory. Initially, the car will be launched as a CBU model in form of AMG EQS 53, and locally-assembled EQS 580 will be introduced later in the year. Mercedes-Benz sells the EQS in two different variants - EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4Matic. The range, price, and horsepower are the primary differences between these two variants.
